On top of all the displacement, rebel attacks, and other insecurities, eastern Congo is apparently due for a volcano eruption.

The good news? There’s not a whole lot of lava in the risky volcanoes these days. The bad news? An eruption could also ignite the massive pocket of deadly methane gas below Lake Kivu.

That’s what they say, anyway. It all sounds like crazy-science-talk…you know, until it happens.
